Steam has added a new ‘item store’ feature. Now, in addition to the player-driven community market, developers can run their own stores (where they set their own fixed prices). Rust is the first game to take advantage, and they’re undercutting some community prices. Hmmm. I’m interested to see how this shakes out.

DISCUSSION

Valve should rename Steam to “Baazar” with the tag “community driven and zero oversight” cause that seems to be where they are trying to go. Zero effort for Valve but tons of sources of new income for them.

Seriously, it’s like every new addition to Steam is just another half asses money making scheme by Valve.

What could possibly go wrong with a developer controlled market. Hmmm!
